Today I had to resign from the beer store as I have been alleged accused of stealing by the loss/prevention district of the beer store. I have not stolen the money and there is no video proof of me taking the money out of the tills as I’m on camera 24/7. Just that my till is missing 500 dollars and they don’t know where it has went. They told me if I resigned and paid the 500 dollars today that it would be as this never happened so I did because I’m only 20 years old trying to become a police officer. They told me that if the investigation was to continue that I would be criminally prosecuted for ether fraud/theft under 500. I don’t know if I made the right decision as now I’m out of a job but I was also afraid that if I was to lose the case I would never become a police officer because I have a criminal record. This is a first time offence for me as I never been charged for anything.
